I was on Joubert street when suddenly a large group of school kids came marching vandalizing and looting the street vendor's stock. The group then went to Ghandi square and marched along Marshal street where they invaded one of the Somali's shop and broke the windows and assaulted the owner whilst others made of with braai packs, mealie mealie, cool drinks.

The shop owner was rescued when some random guy fired shots to disperse the kids.

The kids then proceeded in the direction of Doorfontein and along they way they continued looting most notably looting at the computer shop and vandalize the windows and property inside, the shop owner was rescued by a female metro cop who couldn't do anything either.

Then group then passed UJ DFC campus and went to Hillbrow. Some kids had in their possessions plasma screens, laptops, crates full of looted items as they were passing by. They then went to Park station where they were confronted by a heavy presence of police who guided them to the trains which they boarded for free with the stolen items they had with them.
